Error message was supposedly copy-pasted without change.
Makes it pretty unintuinive to debug.
Fix attached.

But while we are here, it would be nice to replace type(path) with type(path).__name__ (and the same for type(name)).

Should we use __qualname__ instead of __name__?

And I haven't forgotten about your patch, Lev. I'm just occupied trying to get feature changes into Python 3.6 as that has a sooner deadline than bug fixes.

Nevermind. It's not urgent but should definitely be fixed some day.
Yes, __qualname__ might be a good idea.

__qualname__ itself is not much more informative than __name__. You should use it together with __module__ to get the full qualified name. But 1) it is never used in error messages, 2) the code becomes more verbose, 3) the output becomes more verbose, and excessive verbose for builtin types.

__name__ LGTM. It is enough to identify the error.
